Port Said, Egypt (Cruise-by)

As you sail along the fabled Nile for Cairo via Port Said, the profusion of ships waiting to enter the Suez Canal is a sight. But true wonders await on arrival in Cairo, such as the Pyramids of Giza.

The Lighthouse of Port Said is one of the icons of the city, and a great vantage point at the front of the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, Cairo’s National Museum hosts archaeological and pharaoh-era pieces.

Glaciers are dense bodies of ice that move under their own enormous weight. When snowfall in a particular region exceeds the amount of snow that melts, a glacier forms over tens or hundreds of years. Glaciers move and change, retreating or advancing depending on weather conditions, forming deep crevasses and giant columns, and changing the shape of the landscape as they go.
